The Freeze Game

No weapon that is formed against you will prosper;  Isaiah 54:17 A couple of weeks ago at work, the kids were playing the Freeze Game. This is a game they made up and if I understand the rules correctly, if the “Freezer” pointed his his freeze machine (his hand) at you and made a slight hissing noise then you were frozen.  I don’t know for how long.  A five year old approached me with his freeze machine pointed at me and said he was going to freeze me.   I asked him if he knows what the Bible says. He said … Continue reading The Freeze Game

Build Your Faith

Every healing Jesus provided in the New Testament had one common piece. Even though the method changed this piece was present, either in the individual in need of healing or those around him.  And that element was faith!  Faith is simply believing the words of Jesus. If He said it, He meant it, if He meant it, it must be true. Our job is to settle the issue in our heart.   So the obvious next question would be – how do I build my faith?   Romans 10:17 tells us – So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word … Continue reading Build Your Faith

This is Jesus

At sunset, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying his hands on each one, he healed them. Luke 4:40 How to receive your healing Receiving your healing comes down to just one word – faith.  How did you receive salvation and forgiveness for your sins? Faith.  It’s the same principle.  Numerous people have produced books and videos that teach about healing. Simply reading them will not necessarily produce a healing. The truth presented needs to be received and believed and this becomes faith.  The best book for learning about divine healing is, of … Continue reading This is Jesus

It Is Finished

I sat in a doctor’s office the other day. Having switched insurance providers, this visit was merely an opportunity to meet each other. He had my health records from my other provider. He had seen on my record the diagnosis of fibromyalgia and mentioned that I would have that for the rest of my life. I told him that I had been healed of that some years ago. Divinely healed by God. He is a Christian and asked how did that healing happen. I told him mostly through prayer but I realized later that before the prayers, there had to … Continue reading It Is Finished

Blowing In The Wind

At the beginning I declare the outcome;    from of old, things not yet done.I say that my plan shall stand,    I accomplish my every desire. Isaiah 46:10 As a young teenager, some of my fondest memories are of my older sister teaching me to play guitar. We didn’t ordinarily spend a good deal of time together so when we did, it was special to me. One song she taught me and we sang together was Bob Dylan’s Blowing In The Wind. I love that song and it is probably just as relevant today as it was then. In case you aren’t familiar … Continue reading Blowing In The Wind

Communion

And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying,  “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19 I had a conversation with a woman today who has had torn rotary cuffs for years. I should say, I attempted to have a conversation with her. All I actually did was listen. She went into her narrative and I wasn’t given an opportunity to say anything. All my efforts were ignored as she continued on with her story. This is an observation not a judgment, please do not hear me … Continue reading Communion

Sorry Not Today

You know that God anointed Jesus from Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Jesus went everywhere and did good things, such as healing everyone who was under the devil’s power. Jesus did these things because God was with him. Acts 10:38 I’ve looked. I can’t find it. Nowhere in the Bible, to my knowledge, does Jesus tell someone, “sorry, not today.”  Nowhere do I see Him turning away someone who needed healing and saying sorry, I can’t help you today. What I do read is that He went everywhere healing and doing good things and setting people free … Continue reading Sorry Not Today

Something New

Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, Now it will spring forth; Will you not be aware of it? Isaiah 43:18-19 I have made the mistake of looking back. Looking back at times when God healed me, instantly and not so instantly. I’ve even looked back on days when my walk with the Lord was more spontaneous, more joyful than it is right now and yearned for a return to those days.  Then I read this verse and am encouraged to look ahead, to whatever the something … Continue reading Something New

Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

When I remember Thee on my bed, I meditate on Thee in the night watches, For Thou hast been my help, and in the shadow of Thy wings I sing for joy. My soul clings to Thee; Thy right hand upholds me. Psalm 63: 6-8 What are the thoughts that run through your mind when you lay down to sleep at night?  Mine used to be tormenting.  And to be honest here, sometimes, they still are. I would review my day trying to find the link between something I ate or didn’t eat, some supplement I took or didn’t take, … Continue reading Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep

A Balanced Equation

Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.  3 John 1:2 Years ago, I had to revisit algebra in an attempt to help our son with his school work.  One thing I learned is that equations need to be balanced.  For example 2 +5 = 10-3 is a balanced equation.  You probably remember from school that what you do to one side of that equation, you have to do to the other side to keep it balanced. An equation can be unbalanced otherwise. When I looked at this … Continue reading A Balanced Equation
